'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' Director Talks Jean Grey's Transformation

EW Unveils Fiery First Look At Sophie Turner's Jean Grey In X-Men Dark Phoenix

Sophie Turner told EW she studied multiple personality disorder and schizophrenia in order to play Jean's duality. And if she is a shapeshifting alien, it might suggest she could be the famed alien race the Skrulls, as opposed to the previously assumed part of Lilandra, the space empress of the Shi'ar Empire, who plays a major role in the Dark Phoenix Saga's ultimate finale. Audiences saw a similar storyline in 2006's The Last Stand, when Famke Janssen portrayed an adult Jean, but the screenplay sidelined Grey's subplot and the film wasn't well-received.

Jennifer Lawrence is back as Mystique, looking blue-er than ever. According to EW's press release, which amounts to our first synopsis, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is only the beginning of this epic, which should be quite familiar to X-Men fans.

That's what director Simon Kinberg has to say about Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) in his upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix film.

The result is the team's first trip into space where a mission gone awry awakens none other than, you guessed it, The Phoenix Force within Sophie Turner's Jean Grey.




Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, James Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, and Evan Peters are all returning for the film, even though their contracts expired after Apocalypse. Dark Phoenix will hit theaters on November 2nd, 2018, and will have Simon Kinberg at the helm. The movie will also introduce us to Jessica Chastain's character, a shape-shifter who wants to manipulate Phoenix for her own agenda. I'm not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. We don't have a trailer for the film yet, but thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we get a whole new bunch of images for the film. Lawrence is also thrilled about the new environment.

Justin Trudeau, Sophie Turner, and the cast of "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" all ate oysters together.

HollywoodLifers, are you excited for X-Men: Dark Phoenix? This marks his directorial debut, taking the reins from Bryan Singer, who directed Days of Future Past, Apocalypse and the 2000 original X-Men film and its 2003 sequel, X2.
